Default 2008 Saturn Vue XE electric power steering problems

My electric power steering only works when the vehicle is moving. There is also a grinding I can hear and feel when I turn the wheel. What is the problem and how do I fix it? Please help. Thanks.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Default Re: 2008 Saturn Vue XE electric power steering problems

Grinding in the the steering is never good. Could be indicative of a potentially unsafe steering condition.
If the grinding seems to be coming from inside the car, the Electric Power Steering unit could be faulty. If it sounds like it is coming from below the floor board outside the the the rack and pinion steering gear may be worn out.
Here is a link to a good thread on troubleshooting the EPS but due to the safety concern, it may be best to take the car to an expert for diagnosis and repair.
